Deutsche Post DHL and Austrian Post strengthen ties in Slovakia and Czech Republic

Deutsche Post DHL Group and Austrian Post have agreed to work together on last-mile parcel delivery in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Under the agreement, In Time s.r.o., a subsidiary of Austrian Post, will deliver parcels sent by DHL customers to Slovakia, while Deutsche Post DHL Group’s Czech subsidiary, PPL CZ s.r.o. will deliver parcels sent by Austrian Post customers to Czech Republic.

Both arrangements are set to start in September.

“After the collaboration with Austrian Post in Austria both parties decided to further use each other’s delivery network as described in Slovakia and Czech Republic. With e-commerce on the rise and growing parcel volumes high quality and best-in-class customer experience in last-mile-delivery becomes increasingly a key differentiator and with this cooperation we will lay the right foundation for this”, said Petr Horak, Managing Director PPL CZ s.r.o. & DHL Parcel Slovensko.

Carsten Wallmann, Senior Vice President Turkey and Central, Eastern Europe Parcel, Austrian Post, commented: “We look forward to expanding our strategic partnership with DHL. We are confident that we will be able to convince the DHL customers thanks to our quality in last-mile-delivery and are pleased to have found a professional partner in the Czech Republic for our growing cross-border e-commerce business.”

Deutsche Post DHL advised that this agreement has no impact on the business activities of DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, Freight and DHL Supply Chain in Slovakia and Czech Republic.
